Representation by HJS to prevent denigration of National Flag

By Staff Reporter

Tulzapur (Maharashtra): On the occasion of national festivals like 15th August and 26th January, national flags made of paper and plastic are sold in the market. These flags are thrown all over the roads later and get trampled which is an insult of the flag. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), therefore, submitted a representation to Dr. Anant Gavhane, the Resident District Collector and Shri. B. T. Kadam, the Chief Executive Officer of Zilha Parishad demanding prohibition on all primary and secondary students to bring national flags to schools run by the Zilha Parishads and stop its denigration.
Dr. Gavhane assured to send the representation to the Government. Shri. B. T. Kadam said, while accepting the representation that a circular will be issued to this effect and a copy of the same would be forwarded to HJS.
Many members of HJS along with Shri. Sanjay Sonawane, the district-chief of Shree Shiva Pratishthan, Shri. Ajay Salunkhe, the founder of Jai Ambe Pratishthan, Shri. Shankar Vadone, district organizer of Grahak Panchayat and seekers of Sanatan Sanstha were present on the occasion.
Shri Gavhane, while discussing with HJS members said that plastic flag can not be considered as national flag. Therefore, plastic and paper flags can not cause abuse of national flags.

(Congratulations to Shri. Kadam for taking prompt action to stop denigration of national flag. National flag is an identity and matter of pride for the nation irrespective of its size and make. Many freedom fighters faced lot of hardships to save national flag from falling on the ground and here; we have officials trying to shirk from their responsibility citing some technical points. – Editor)
